Thank You Cards – Raising Money for the Kings and Queens of COVID
A limited-edition playing cards pack created as a tribute to the Kings and Queens of the National Health Service and other keyworkers, with all funds raised going to charity.
Founder and Creative Director, Asa Cook decided to use the time during lockdown to create something meaningful and beautifully designed that celebrates those who have put themselves on the front line fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Asa explains: “I hope that these cards will act as a long-lasting reminder of the dedication and bravery of the keyworkers during the crisis and our own personal experiences of the unprecedent times we’re living through.”
Whilst Asa and his team created the playing card packaging and back designs, he collaborated with 18 artists and illustrators from around the globe – both well-known names and up-and-coming talent – to create unique and symbolic card designs that are representative of the COVID Heroes and Heroines.
the cards are printed on Casino quality stock by LNS print and are available to buy from @intertypestudio now (link in their bio). Limited edition run, only 190 decks are available at £25 each whilst 10 ‘gilt edged’ decks are available at £45 each with all money going to NHS Charities Together and Mind.
The box features a poem written by Caroline Slade @carolines_words. Animation by @artillerystudio www.artillery.tv Photography by @para_bens from yardphoto.co.uk. #nhsthankyoucards
